How to make the Bath Salts

  2. Sprinkle in the dried rose petals and mix gently.
  3. Add the mixture into the sheer bags with a spoon and tie the ribbons closed.
  4. Add the tags with a sticker and your done!

How to oven dry rose petals

  1. Choose natural garden roses that have a nice scent (some commercial flowers have little scent and are sprayed) You can find these in local farmers markets.Gently remove the petals from the 3 roses.
  2. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

3 . Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet and lay the petals down

4. Bake the petals for 10 minutes or until the petals are crisp and break up easily. You don’t want any water left over in the petals. If the petals are still soft to the touch, just bake for 2 more minutes, remove, and check.

Once your satisfied with the dryness, take the parchment paper and petals off the hot sheet to cool on the counter. Break them up and add to your bath salt mixture. Enjoy your bath and thanks to share this article!
